for chuck. >> and the big premier tonight. >> did mitt romney have a better wednesday than super tuesday? as the political world wakes up? it's clear mitt romney did well thanks to 12,000 votes in ohio. like all romney victories this year, it comes with a caveat. as santorum takes a stronger claim as the conservative alternative. despite all the results, all the new delegates, the story is the same, romney has a perception problem. santorum has a math problem. and as for paul and gingrich, they simply have a candidate credibility problem. and president obama doesn't sit super tuesday out. his first 2012 press conference includes a sharp rebuke of the republican candidates that he says are beating the drums of war when it comes to iran. it's wednesday, the day after, march 7th, 2012. this is the daily rundown. super tuesday is behind us. let's get to the first reads of the morning. mitt romney won the raw popular vote. he won states in five time zones, and still, all that comes with a but. romney continues to struggle with the same parts of the party he struggled with the entire campaign.
mitt romney supporter, phil musser, co-anchor of cnbc's squawk box, "the new york times" andrew ross sorkin, jen ben dri of "the huffington post" and former white house deputy press secretary bill burton who runs the obama super pac, priorities usa action. mitt romney the only man standing in illinois today, as newt gingrich campaigns in louisiana and rick santorum is in pennsylvania. but with team romney these days, is there even such a thing as a decisive win? phil, i want to go to you first on this. and these numbers, i think, are somewhat staggering, if you look at politico reporting in illinois mitt romney outspending rick santorum 7-1. chicago, he's outspending santorum 21-1. i want to unpack the chicago numbers first because why spend that mump money in chicago? isn't that romney territory already or is this a sign of a campaign not letting anything go? >> that's a good question. the one thing to know about illinois is that 70% of the vote in the illinois primary comes from north of the interstate 80 that cuts the state in half. or the bulk of the vote comes from, it come

get out. mitt romney wants them both gone. will the march through march push anybody to the breaking point? team obama starts hammering romney from the other side as hom me in struggles with his own party's primary. they define him as an unacceptable alternative and romney can fully fight back. john boehner butts heads can fellow republicans over billions of dollars for roads, rails and bridges. can he get the tea party base to govern? good morning from washington. it's super thursday. this is "the daily rundown." let's get to the first read of the morning. super tuesday marks the beginning of the end. it's marked the beginning of the end of every competitive campaign for the last quarter century. for now, this republican race apparently is going on. mitt romney tries desperately behind the scenes to end it. the campaign spent much of yesterday making the case that neither santorum or gingrich has a realistic shot and brought out show and tell to highlight the advantage adding it would take an act of god for one of them to go. we will get to 1144 and be the republican nominee. that g
? it all depends on who wins. what could be three-way squeakers in mississippi and alabama. mitt romney hopes the santorum/gingrich split vote means he could sneak a victory in dixie. >>> for the second day in a row we get a national poll that finds president obama's approval rating slipping as gas prices continue to soar. the white house very defensive on this issue. is there more to these poll results than meet the eye. >>> and the fallout grows after that tragic killing spree in afghanistan. protests on the rise in afghanistan, and here at home pressure builds on the president to bring the troops home. has war fatigue among americans reached an actual tipping point? it's tuesday, march 13th, it's 2012, it's southern super tuesday. this is "the daily rundown," i'm chuck todd. >>> a romney victory tonight in either alabama or mississippi would knock fence sitters off the fence. if gingrich loses either of these southern states, where can he win and where does he go. ahead of today's contest the candidates have declared themselves adopted sons of the south. for these northern republican
romney go back to the lab and emerge with mitt romney 2.0, this is "now." joining me today, kurt anderson, host of studio 360 radio and john harwood, karen finney, and political analyst, john heileman. last night, mitt romney won the most states and extended his overall delegate lead to more than 200, but the bottom line is that he has not locked up the nomination, is he becoming a stronger candidate or a weaker one? folks? my thinking here is that this could be a pivot point for the team romney, not just going back to the lab but refining a message, making him a stronger candidate, there's a contention out there that he has been bloodied and bruised but this could be good. >> i'm feeing like we have read that and said that five or six times eer already. the question was would newt gingrich make him a better candidate. so far, i've not seen what we have seen in the democratic race as hillary and obama duked it out. obama ended up being a stronger candida candidate, but along with that we saw turn out and excitement in the democratic party only to up, which helped in the general.
a split decision on super tuesday. mitt romney taking six states, including the big prize, ohio. and, of course, he's winning the delegate count, but he can't seem to shift the perception game to send the message that he's a winner. and so the race goes on. >> tonight we're doing some counting. we're counting up the delegates for the convention and it looks good, and we're counting down the days until november and that looks even better. >> romney is winning the numbers game, but rick santorum captured tennessee, oklahoma and north dakota. and what's key, came in second in ohio by just 1%. >> we're going to get at least a couple gold medals and a whole passel full of silver medals. when they thought, okay, he's finally finished, we keep coming back. >> and don't forget, newt gingrich, who launched what he wants to be, his own comeback, winning his home state of georgia, although he couldn't manage even second in any other state. >> you just can't quite get across to them, it's all right. there are lots of bunny rabbits that run through. i'm the tortoise. >> joining me, david and

, corrosive to the brand and the party's overall chances. romney has the support of 38% of likely republican voters in the new "wall street journal" poll. the best standing we ever recorded for him. santorum trails at 32%. gingrich and paul tied at 13%. support for romney is up 10 points and 15 points since the end of last year. she performing better with the parts that have been most resistance. we trail among tea partiers and the conservative voters. romney is backing nearly double since january up from 21% to 35%. nearly twice as many voter who is call themselves very conservative support of candidacy. we asked the voters to identify the top positive and negative quality of each of the candidates. voters like romney's knowledge of the issues where he scores best. he said his biggest negative is he waffles on issue. santorum is damaged on electability. he cannot be a strong opponent against president obama. overall the bitter nomination fight is taking a toll on the brand. 40% of adults said it made them feel less favorable. only 12% have a more favorable impression. that is upside down ev
market and we're going to dive right into it. sizzle number two. the santorum threat against romney. well, last night's primary showed it. romney's got to make a much better case that romney care in massachusetts isn't obama care. that's his challenge. and the story everybody's talking about, a goldman sachs executive quits in a very public way writing an op-ed in the "new york times," calling the firm and i quote toxic and destructive. but we ask, is the giant headed for failure? we begin tonight with the markets, the dow up 16, the close at 13, 194. the nasdaq up a point to 3,040, the s&p closing at 1394. now a little micro. rates rising, dollar strong, dollars up by .5% to 80, and gold is falling $51 all the way down to 1,642. ten-year bond rates closing at 2.72%. all right, rick santelli, my take is the economy's getting better, real interest rates are rising, that's boosting the value of the dollar. and because people like the economy in the stock market they're getting out of gold. what are you thinking? >> well, that there's several areas that are contributing to the increase in ra
saying that this is on this trajectory the beginning of the end of romney becoming the nominee and having the delegates in hand before tampa. >> the beginning of the end says mark halperin. michael steele, you once said that mitt romney, the brother just can't bake the cake. it looks like the oven may be hot enough for romney. let's look at the winner board. romney at 47% of the vote in illinois. rick santorum at 35%. ron paul at 9% is, gingrich at 8%. more staggering i guess is the delegate total romney at 485, santorum at 193, gingrich at 137, paul at 34. what do you make of it? >> i agree with park. he's clearly and always been kind of the guy to beat and been out there, but it doesn't mean you're not going to have tensions going into this convention that i still don't believe he'll have 1144 when he gets to tampa. he'll have to negotiate that. i don't see how he wins 50 plus percent of the delegates. he got 47 here in illinois, which was tailor-made for him. illinois's a state where he should have had 52, 53% of the vote in which case that -- when you hit that threshold, you get all t
roberts. we get straight to it starting on the agenda today. mitt romney desperate to lock up the front-runner title in the battle for the republican nomination and avoid falling flat with illinois voters. romney padded his delegate league with a win in puerto rico and is hoping to keep that going. >> i must bet the margin was just about as good. i need only one thing from you this morning, no, two. i need some pancakes and, number two, number two, i need you to go vote tomorrow. >> so we're not talking about pancakes over the weekend. romney made much use of the word economic lightweight. using that phrase to link both rick santorum and president obama. >> i believe itch the best chance and perhaps the only chance of actually replacing barack obama as the president of the united states. >> so not taking that one lying down. rick santorum hit back with these words on "morning joe." if i'm a lightweight, i agree, he's a heavyweight. is a big government heavyweight. that's what he said his record was. we need someone who understands that washington isn't the answer to our proble
i'm chris jansing. ed in end, it wasn't even close. mitt romney crushed rick santorum in illinois last night with almost 50% of the vote, a decisive victory that has the romney campaign calling him the inevitable nominee again with his sights set on president obama. >> it's time to say these words, this word -- enough. we've had enough. we know our future. we know our future is brighter than these troubled times. we still believe in america. and we deserve a president who believes in us. and i believe in the american people. >> dave whigle and josh marshall join us. gentlemen, good morning. >> good morning. >> josh, good to have you here on set. for all intents and purposes, is the race for the republican nomination over this morning? >> yes. but it's been over for weeks. the question has only been how damaged is mitt romney going to be when he gets to tampa? and i think this holds out the possibility that he can really kind of shut this down and start taking the next few months to refocus on obama and start repairing some of the damage that this bizarre struggle with a fourth-tie
romney across the northeast and rick santorum in oklahoma. the biggest surprise in all, ohio. santorum and romney have fought tooth and nail to emerge vicks you from the buckeye state. let's listen to the candidates as their final pitch goes out to voters. >> i do think we have a very real chance to win. but we're not here to get you to help callista and me. we're here to get you to help the country. >> this is not just about names on the ballot. this isn't an election about the course for america. we have to get rid of a failed president and get someone in there that understand this is economy and go to work to help the american people. >> the difference in this campaign is not just about governor romney being for obamacare, romneycare, advocating, as we've seen in the last week or two, it's one thing to be for it. it's another thing to not tell the truth to the people of this country about it. with e need a president and a nominee we can trust. >> let's bring in our super tuesday power panel. i love saying that. alicia menendez, chip salzman and richard wolf. i want to start with the
you back here on monday. stick around for "the daily run down ". >>> mitt romney picks up key endorsements. rick santorum walks back some of his most controversial statements and newt gingrich digs in his heels. we are with the republican race as it takes a southern lap. brace yourselves. the house pass as jobs bill with support from both sides of the aisle. is this the beginning of a new partisanship? this is "the daily run down." developing news out of the labor department. the february report shows strong job growth for a third straight month but not enough to bring down the unemployment rate. it remained at 8.3% despite the addition of 227,000 jobs. the chief economist for moody's and probably the most often quoted economist on capitol hill. thank you for being on the program today. we saw about 8.3% growth. 200,000 jobs added. this is the fifth straight month of declining unemployment. the third straight month of job growth over 200,000. the last time we saw this run of consecutive growth was in early 2011 and that led to summer stagnation. is this going to continue on fo
. donald trump has been asked by mitt romney to go out to ohio and campaign for him. >> is that right? >> yeah. he did some work, made some calls in michigan. >> i love donald, but i think it's a bad move. it shows weakness and you're bringing the carnival. wrong move. bad move. >> what are you talking about? >> bad move. >> what's the carnival? >> i love donald, but if you're a serious political guy, shouldn't have to need donald trump. >> i don't understand. >> willie geist, the latter day abraham lincoln. >> i'm out of here. >> tomorrow, a big show on education tomorrow. stick around for chuck right now. >>> politics, the senate sinks into good old-fashioned take that mode. fights over birth control coverage, precisely why moderates like o liolympia snow feel there's no room for them anymore. >>> romney's campaign says he didn't understand the question. what's this pattern of romney roiling over some remark within hours of a big primary win. >>> and a look back at how rick santorum rocketed through the ranks of pennsylvania politics. and how did he go from winning four in a row to
. >>> romney's campaign says he didn't understand the question. what's this pattern of romney roiling over some remark within hours of a big primary win. >>> and a look back at how rick santorum rocketed through the ranks of pennsylvania politics. and how did he go from winning four in a row to getting clobbered by double digits? good morning, it's thursday, march 1st. let's get right to my first read of the morning. ten states vote on tuesday with the big prize being ohio. but this morning, we do have new results to report from wyoming. the 11th state that hands out a couple of delegates on super tuesday. romney won wyoming non-binding precinct straw poll. 39% of the voter over rick santorum, only about 2,100 republicans participated. smaller than the average cpac straw poll. it is simply an indicator of how the state may vote in its upcoming townee and state conventions, where 26 of the 29 delegates will be bound. we also have our final results from michigan. and it is a romney/santorum split. 15 each. wednesday morning, santorum declared michigan a tie. by mid afternoon, he challenged report

-proclaimed senator racked up zero delegates in puerto rico sunday while mitt romney got a big boost in illinois. alisha, what we've seen here is that now, mitt romney has well over 10% of his lead just from these territories. what happened in puerto rico? >> i think the big story that everyone missed was governor luis fortuna calling out his troops. he scheduled his primary the same day as this presidential be primary meaning his entire party was showing up voting for mitt romney. what you now see romney doing is saying i won puerto rico. clearly i can doing well with latinos. just because you win the island of puerto rico doesn't mean su win puerto ricans in the i 4 corridor. >> jimmy, does this victory have any legs? >> not really. puerto ricans traditionally vote democratic. cuban-americans traditionally vote republican. you can't vote into an island and tell people they can't speak the language and expect to carry the people. so that's a problem for rick santorum. mitt romney did what he needed to do, fine. doesn't mean a hell of a lot. now we'll go to april and d.c., maryland and some of t

todd. let's get to my first read of the morning. in less than 48 hours, mitt romney gets his next midwestern test. can rick santorum do what he's done in every midwestern battleground state yet and turn it into a nail biter. romney started his day in illinois with another win under his belt. he walked away with landslide victory in puerto rico's primary. romney said that his victory signaled republicans can win hispanic voters in november. >> this isn't some little island. it's 4 million people. if it were a state, it would be the 25th largest state in the country. those people who don't think that latinos will vote for republicans need to take a look in puerto rico. >> santorum who made a tactical choice to take two days away from campaigning in illinois to try to keep romney's puerto rico delegate number down released a statement allegedly in congratulations but saying "we know mitt romney will do and say anything to get votes and this is just another example of that. i think 90% of americans who believe english should be the official language of this country must be wondering w

season in september. yes, mitt romney won the dual of stupor tuesday, ohio, but he did it by just 12,000 votes. and after outspending rick santorum more than four to one in the state. and also after once again relying on his base, the cadillac and horsey set. rick santorum had his share of wins in oklahoma and tennessee. but that loss in ohio, well, do the math, rick. simple math, not some snobbish calculus. your chances of stopping romney will require as a romney spokesman just said, an act of god. and with mr. santorum, taking a page from mr. romney's guide to public speaking, mistakes and other embarrassing episodes, gaffes like this are not going to help. >> i've never passed a statewide government-run health care system. whether he i was governor because well, i wasn't governor. >>, of course. mr. romney could not let that pass. so he fired back showing santorum who the king of the gaffe really is. >> this president's run out of ideas. he's run out of excuses and in 2012, we're going to get him out of the out -- out of the white house. >> out of the where in and what election ni
be a second hol w holocaust. >> i'm unclear what they propose. mitt romney says crippling sanction s over and over and that seems to be about it. the idea that any u.s. president as eric outlined before break would sort of you know, gun for a war in the middle east right now or for any military intervention at this moment in time is poppycock. >> we see the difference of campaigning and being in office. you can have a fact free zone and a free zone when you are running for office. the president has been focused on iran since day one. there's a great international impact of a danger of a nuclear weapon in iran's hands and the need to apply greater pressure. and that has happened. there's a lot going on in europe in in terms of sanctions that largely disconnects iran from the global economy and we will see how that goes. but, i think that you know, the president has pulled the united states out of iraq, you know, which has been very popular. he thats a plan to pull the united states out of combat in afghanistan in 2014, i think the american people support that. so if the president's message
romney was in place calle snowville, georgia on sunday. he said if president obama is reelected then iran will get the bomb and the world will change. i think that got under the skin of some of the officials at the white house. coupled with that the president went to apec on sunday morning and gave his speech where he talked about loose talk of war. we thought he was referring to some of the leaders on both sides of the issue, both israeli and american. it turns out that could easily be applied to some of these republican candidates. the republican candidates appeared there today. a lot of tough rhetoric from there. you heard the president say they are playing politics. if they want to launch a war, they should just say so. >> michael viqueira at the white house. first questioner of the president. thanks so much. let's bring in our panel for more analysis. good day to all of you. dave, if you listen to the president on the seriousness of the potential conflict between iran and israel and then you compare his comments with the stupidity that comes from the mouth of gingrich and santorum, t
